Molecular Biologist by training (German Diplom in Biology). Using wetlab and bioinformatics methods on RNA and microRNA studies on evolutionary questions. Focus on Next Generation Sequencing and genomics approaches. Previously working on phylogenetic and taxonomic aspects of microRNAs in flatworms, I have recently switched to biomedical research on microRNAs and colorectal cancer.
